EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) _ The New Jersey Nets, looking for some inside help, announced the signing of center Robert Werdann on Tuesday.

Werdann, a Queens, N.Y., native, saw limited action with the Nets last season before having his rights renounced during the summer.

The former St. John’s star arrived from Oklahoma City during the third period Monday of the Nets-New York Knicks game. He wasn’t able to sit on the bench because he did not sign a contract until after the game.
